, the republican governor of new jersey chris christie. welcome back to "meet the press." >> happy to be back, david. good morning. >> the key battleground states, nine of them, we've been polling in nine of them, and all nine it's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mat
almost everyone seems to be muting enthusiasm in trying to undersell new jersey governor chris christie is taking a different tack. overselling with gusto. >> come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. we have a candidate that is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night. when we get to thursday morning george, you're going to be shaking your head saying it's a brand new race with 33 days to go. >> governor christie right in the sense that romney needs to change the dynamic of the race. a new "washington post"/abc news survey find 5s 5% of voters think the president will win the debates compared to 31% who believe rom wil win. romney adviser tell "the new york times" they're aiming to make the president come off as condescending or smug. that characterized obama's notable gaffe during the 2008 primary when hillary clinton was asked what she would say to voters who seemed to like barack obama more. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> governor romney's 23 debate
are open to changing your mind. what about this. good morning to both of you. rich, chris christie predicts a whole new race thursday morning. is it a game changer or not? >> we'll see. one thing i do think in this rasmussen poll goes to this, that people are more persuadable and susceptible to argument and changing their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big number. if you look at undecided voters in most polls it's around 6%. but rich is right. people will pay attention to this and they will look for something maybe to make them change their minds for people wh

, anna marie, chris christie says he can turn it around on wednesday night, and he says we're going to wake up with a fresh sense of this candidate on thursday morning. what are your thoughts? >> well, i love chris christie for a lot of reasons. he's certainly the most irreverent republican governor we have and i think maybe -- i don't know if that was a line that came from the romney campaign or if that's his own evaluation. certainly a more optimistic statement than we've heard from the romney campaign itself. it might be wishful thinking. i know chris christie tends to root for the underdog like a lot of americans. i'm actually kind of hoping mitt will do well in the debates. i hate seeing people humiliate themselves. i'm hoping for at least a decent performance from mitt romney. whether or not it will turn things around, you know, i think people have been talking about it all day, debates tend to not completely reverse the course of things. they tend to either entrench a narrative or just make things kind of tighten up a little bit. i don't think we're going to see those polls t

and downplay expectations. new jersey governor chris christie said a high bar for romney. >> this is the first moment when the american people can see these two guys by side, letting out their visions unfiltered. i think that will be a powerful moment for mitt romney. >> obama senior advisers said they are preparing. >> they have been practicing for months. i am sure they will have a lot of clever lines, but that is not the american people are looking for. >> abc news political analyst matt dowd says advisors are emphasizing style over substance. >> debates that have changed people's lives have been about physical debates and -- physical characteristics and mannerisms, not substance. >> both have challenges. the president needs to keep his answers short to avoid sounding like the professor he was before entering the white house. romney has to connect with voters and seem relatable. >> joining us now to talk about this -- a guest from politico. thank you for being here. so much at stake for mitt romney on wednesday. what does he need to do to make an impact? >> he needs to change the dynamic of
, referring to the gop primary debates. the one guy who didn't get the memo, new jersey governor chris christie. he hit the sunday morning talk shows, playing up the expectations for mitt romney. >> here's the great news for republicans. we have lap candidate who will do extraordinarily well. he will come am wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, contrast his view and the president's record and this whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> reporter: this unfiltered confidence may not make much of a splash. a newark ton post poll shows 55% of likely voters think the president will win this debate. only 31% say it will be romney. new this is a poll president obama likely does not want to win because he essentially says mitt romney is the underdog going into the debate. >> kelly? >> i don't think i've seen a gap that huge in one of the polls. the national candidates are usually neck and neck, pretty close. >> reporter: the cnn poll out among likely voters show present obama at 50% and mitt romney at 47%. that's obviously, within the margin of error. given
of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> i want to bring in dana milbank and matt welsh. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i suppose we shouldn't be surprised this race to lower expectations. give us your take on the expectations for this debate. >> romney needs something to happen for him. he's had a bad couple of weeks. ever since the 47% comment which i think that be difficult for him. what he needs to do is kind of what obama did in 2008. when you look at when things started to move for obama, it was during the debates. specifically he made the case then right or wrong that he was a better steward of the economy than john mccain in troubled times. romney's got to make that case in

chris christie is giving his prediction. listen to this. >> oo every time mitt romney has been confronted in in campaign in one of these moments he has come through and performed extraordinarily well. >> also the obama camp on this. >> 1971 disney world opens in florida. >> good morning. welcome back to fox and friends first. i am heather nauert. >> i am ainsley earhardt. the top five stories making news at this hour. fox news identifying victims from mexico killed with weapons from the fast and furious gun walking operation. new documents reveal the u.s. program sits sent some 2,000 guns into the country. they were used in about 300 shootings including one at a birthday party in january 2010. 16 teenagers were killed. the mexican government has remained silent for the most part. estimated 1300 guns from the operation are still unaccounted for. 10 years after the dc snierp shooting rampage that left 140 people deadly vow malvo is speaking out. >> they say if you look up the definition i was a ghoul. i was a thief. i stole people's life. >> malvo who is now just a teenager at th
new jersey governor chris christie, because he was setting the bar high for mr. romney. listen. >> he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is, the president's view for the future and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> upside down is what he says. in just a few minutes we're going to be talking about wednesday night's debate and the president's preparations with brad woodhouse, communications director for the democratic national committee. first some of the other stories making news in d.c. getting ready for wednesday's debate coverage is john berman. hey, john, good morning. >> we're doing debate prep just like the candidates here in washington. start overseas, soledad. the taliban taking responsibility for an attack in eastern afghanistan that killed at least 14 people. civilians, police, and three nato soldiers. officials say the suicide bomber targeted a joint patrol using a motorcycle packed with explosives. this attack comes a day after
on thursday morning as chris christie said with a completely different campaign? >> i think all the debates are important but particularly this one because it's on domestic policy which is the critical issue in the race and the first times that americans will get to see mitt romney and barack obama side by side. not only hear their words and assess their styles and their candor, but also get to hear the ideas. i think that's what this whole race comes down to, is the record. i would say the failed record of barack obama on jobs, on gas prices, on debt management, on energy and compare that to the vision and the ideas for the future that mitt romney has. it's very important. the last couple weeks there's been a little bit of a movement for the president. but listen, speeches don't create jobs. rhetoric doesn't create jobs. good ideas do. and the president, despite his efforts, has failed to help the american people get back to work and i think mitt romney has better ideas. that's what this debate will be about. >> business crill crystal and o republicans have questioned whether mitt romney h
the years. >> but on "meet the press" it was apparently governor chris christie who went off script who said he's going to have to beat the result if mitt romney is going to come out on top in november. >> on wednesday night, mitt romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the united states and i'm telling you, david, come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> we'll see if he's right. but what chris christie says is right as predicted if you're mitt romney. donors are nervous, and perhaps in christie's mind his assertion was an atelt to boost the morral of romney's supporters. the bottom line, if christie's aspirations do not come true, romney has bigger problems. people who pay no federal tacks and get government help, were, quote, inarticulate. >> we've had some missteps but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear and we're giving people a really clear choice. >> but when ryan was asked by fox's chris wallace whether the media is, quote, carrying water for barack obama, ryan took the bait and ryan wasn't the only one
it will be a crucial night for president obama. chris christie says he expects romney to deliver. >> i think what we need is a big and bold performance on wednesday night and that's what he's going to give us. >> this is the ballgame for mitt romney right any because if he doesn't do well at the debate it will be very hard for him to get back in it. >> meanwhile president obama is reportedly hold up in this nevada resort preparing to confront romney. >> what the president will have to do early on is to jump start this the way you would do a jump ball and make sure that mitt romney never gets the ball back. >> if the election were held today, an associated press poll shows mr. obama well within reach of the 270 electoral votes needed for a win with ohio and iowa now among the states he would carry. romney would need to quickly gain the upper hand in nearly all of the nine states where he and the president are competing the hardest. >>> you can see the first debate between mitt romney and president obama right here on abc7. abc news, your voice, your vote. live debate coverage begins at 6:00 p.m. this

it. we're talking about chris christie, the outspoken governor of new jersey. so take a listen in his own words. >> here's the great news for republicans, we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night. the first time he has the opportunity to stand on the same stage with the president of the united states and the first time a majority of the people who are going to vote in this race will have an opportunity to make that direct comparison and see the two of them. and when they do, i've seen mitt romney do this before. he's going to come in wednesday night, lay out his vision for america, he's going to contrast what his view is with what the president's record is and the president's view for the future. and this whole race is going to be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> wait, wait, mr. christie, the whole idea is to lower the bar for your candidate, not raise the bar. chris christie does whatever he wants. but he did bring up a good point, the idea of contrast. they want to show the contrast, the choice between what mitt romney would do in th
that aren't true. zpl you've got to love chris christie. sometimes, if you're going to call someone a liar, you can just call them a liar. this is a preview of what we're going to be hearing from mitt romney on wednesday. that's what some say. will it happen and will that attack work? good to seyou both. >> what's happening. >> good to be here! is he going to come out, ryan, and say, look, there you go. that famous there you go again. there's another lie or no? >> i think it's unpredictable. i'm not sure if the debate is the right place to do it. after the paul ryan speech, you have the obama campaign referring to the lies in paul ryan's speech and that's echoed by president obama's allies in the media. when you don't have the romney campaign's response robustly. for example, president obama has been running ads claiming that mitt romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you c
aside, is going to be very, very divisive, according to even his own supporters. governor chris christie argued this weekend that the debate will completely change the state of the race. take a listen to governor christie. >> guess what, on wednesday night, mitt romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the united states and i am telling you, david, come thursday morning, the entire race will change. >> is he overstating the case there or will the narrative change and if it will change, dana, which way will it change? it could change where there's no hope left at all for romney? >> i bet governor christie 10,000 bucks that that narrative is not going to be changed in such a manner. it is true that if romney is going to get back in this race, this is the time to do it. the first debate. the second and third debate, that's all nice. but this is the last chance that he has to win a first impression or second or third, which ever it is at this point. there is some promise for romney in the post abc polls, expectations are high. many more people think that obama wil
. but apparently someone forgot to tell romney's surrogate chris christie, the republican new jersey governor says his guy will turn the race upsidedown. >> thursday morning you're all going to be scratching your heads and saying, wow, we have a barn burner now for the next 33 days. >> let's get the views from both camps. dan lothian and paul steinhauser. welcome, gentlemen. >> hello. >> hello. are you excited? come on. we need to up the enthusiasm level. dan, let's start with you. team obama says no zingers. he's going to talk to those people on the couches. really? no zingers? >> well, you know, listen to what jen socky, the traveling communications or spokesperson with the campaign, she said probably not. probably not what the president will be focused on. that the president instead will be speaking to the american people, talking about moving the country forward. so that will be the focus. but i have to tell you, in the middle of a debate, no doubt we will hear some sharp responses from the president as he tries to counter what mitt romney may be throwing his way. the bottom line, though, as y
and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of three presidential debates. like this -- >> frankly, i can't remember the last time there was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention because, frankly, the candidates are too well-prepared. they're well-scripted. >> reporter: and like this -- >> more importantly, i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. >> reporter: but definitely governor christie, definitely not like this. >>
